What are the degree options?
The Disability Studies Certificate Program is located administratively in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Social Work, and is directed by the Center for Disability Studies and Universal Access. However, the certificate program is interdisciplinary, involving multiple academic departments throughout the university.
Disability Studies is a multidisciplinary field drawing from humanities, liberal arts and the sciences, and is taught by faculty from multiple fields and disciplines. The Disability Studies Certificate program, offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, educates students to develop an understanding of disability, disability culture and people with disabilities as inclusive members of society. The program's emphasis on universal access complements the university's mission to prepare its graduates to live and work in a diverse society.
